Lasting Images - Tony Scherman

Tony Scherman was born in Toronto in 1950, and received a master's degree from the Royal College of Art in London, England, in 1974. He is recognized as one of Canada's consummate artists working in the encaustic medium.

His prolific art practice has extended over three decades, during which he has exhibited broadly in Canada, the United States and Europe. Scherman's work is held in numerous high profile public and private art collections, including Musée de l'Art Contemporain, Canada Council Art Bank, Royal College of Art (London), and California Center of the Arts (Escondido, California).

Both Europa's Revenge and Untitled (still life) were gifted to the University of Lethbridge Art Collection by the artist in 2009.
